*** The setlist was almost impossible to build *** ; here is what you can read on the Elsewhere Vangelis great independent site - thanks to him - (http://elsew.com/) :
'The music at this concert is mainly improvised but sounds surprisingly full, considering the era it was performed in. Although there was no way yet to work with MIDI setups and smartly splitted and layered multisettings Vangelis managed to give a broad and lively performance.
The piano has a rather dominating function but is mostly accompanied by synthesizer sounds of all sorts. Also some sequenced cues are triggered by Vangelis to accommodate the music. Only a few small parts feature other musicians. The most important of these is the appearance of violist Michel Ripoche
Some parts of the new music are reminiscent of Ignacio (especially the piano part some 10 minutes into its first part) and China. Although a lot familiar cues appear, like the sequence of "I hear you now" (which was to be released a year after), very few actual pre-existing compositions were included. Amongst those that did appear were "Alpha" and of course "Pulstar" which Vangelis seems to play every time he can, each in a different way.'

WHY DID I USE minidisc (MD) ?
Actually Dime rules admit the use of MD as long as the original concert was on a cassette tape.
I numerized my tape on MD 10 years ago ; in those days I had no choice, because I didn't have aproper computer or software to do that. In the meantime, the original tape was exposed to 10 years of demagnetization... Honestly, using MD was the best solution.
